Legally, the UDM party is still part of the Azimio coalition and can only leave in December. 

The Kenya Kwanza Alliance is now set to control the Council of Governors, the Senate and the National assembly.  

The new details come after the President elect on Thursday stated that 10 independent members of parliament agreed to join his Camp.  

The Kenya Kwanza had already gotten 159 members but with the recent developments it is set to have 176 MPs. 

UDA, which has the majority Mps in the camp, is also set to be given the highest number of slots in the nominations. 

In the senate Kenya Kwanza has sealed its majority with the defection of Ali Roba. It will now have 25 senators while ODM will have 22.
